Visit from the USA

On their journey Julie and David visited Donostia last Friday, March 31,   where they joined our greeter Ana to know more about our city.
In the ride that carried out, they saw part of the history  and charms of Donostia,  appreciated the bustling pedestrian streets and the silence of MºCristina  botanic park, as well as the atmosphere of the Old Town, where they enjoyed fine cuisine.   8 more words

Adios Barcelona

After a much needed and rewarding sleep, we woke up to a beautiful breakfast provided by our air B&B host: pastries, bananas, and coffee. Once we ate, we said our goodbyes and headed off to explore a little more of Barcelona before going to the airport. 187 more words


Basque Pintxos - Spring Treat in Bilbao

Bilbao – what a magnificent surprise! Small enough to explore on foot, this great city is the perfect energy boost in the spring time! Obviously, the Guggenheim museum is the magnet and was the catalyst for Bilbao’s great metamorphosis from an industrial city (“El Botxo”, meaning the hole due to the heavy shipbuilding and steel industry), to a cultural, culinary and architectural heaven. 329 more words

San Sebastian, Spain

Ahhhhh. San Sebastian. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways… in pintxos!

This long weekend trip to Basque country was all about food, so it is only fitting for the top ten be about food and food alone. 862 more words
